Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -July 18, 2015


 

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!

July 18, 2015

 
On Broadway, Amazing Grace, music and lyrics by Christopher Smith, book by Christopher Smith and Arthur Giron, at the Nederlander Theatre, is based on the true story of an English slave trader John Newton (Josh Young) in 1744, who found redemption, when he became an abolitionist, fighting the evils of slavery, and wrote the inspirational Amazing Grace in1772. It is a splendid production, with many wonderful scenes, beautiful costumes, and a cast that sings magnificently. Josh Young and Erin Mackey are lovers, and sing and act marvelously. They have two of the finest voices on Broadway, but the entire cast is superb, including Tom Hewitt, Chuck Cooper, Harriett D. Foy and Laiona Michelle, under the direction of Gabriel Barre. When the performance ends with the entire cast singing the title song, the audience rises to grant them a thunderous, well deserved ovation.

 
Off-Broadway, a revival of Ruthless!, book and lyrics by Joel Paley, music by Marvin Laird, at the St. Luke's Theatre, has a talented Tori Murray as a murderous 8-year-old third grader, (she is actually 10-years-old), who wants to star in the school play. Among the cast members, directed by Joel Paley, Kim Maresca, as her mother, is also fine. It is a lot of fun. Among the opening night guests were Regis Philbin, Bernadette Peters and Mario Cantone. We celebrated the opening night with a lavish party at the Hunt & Fish Club, 125 West 44th St. The food and drinks were delicious. It was probably the finest Off-Broadway party I ever attended, equal to any on Broadway.

 
 

 

 




 
MoMA is presenting Glorious Technicolor: From George Eastman House and Beyond June 5-August 5. Quo Vadis, by Mervyn LeRoy, USA, 1951, is an overlong, dull film, that takes place in Rome during the reign of the Emperor Nero (Peter Ustinov in an over-the-top performance). Every cliche possible in the English language is spoken by each member of the cast. It is a tale of a Roman soldier (a wooden Robert Taylor) in love with a Christian (a bland Deborah Kerr). The only lively scene was performed by the lions in the arena. They know how to act.

 
A superb exhibition Sinatra: An American Icon is on display at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. With it, films are being shown in the Bruno Walter Auditorium. We saw an interesting documentary Jimmy Van Heusen: Swingin' with Frank and Bing, by Jim Burns, USA, 2014. Van Heusen won four Oscars and one Emmy for his songs. He composed over 600. He was a best friend of Sinatra, and wrote many songs for films starring Crosby. The film clips were delightful. The comments by talking heads, especially those by cabaret, singers, were not, and the final scene of Michael Buble singing All the Way was a travesty.

 
Andrew Rannells and Bernadette Peters were the hosts of the 17th Annual Broadway Barks! at Shubert Alley. They posed with dogs that were up for adoption at the John Golden Theatre. It is always a worthy event with many actors from Broadway appearing with their dogs.

 
We attended a food tasting at Sofrito, in Riverbank State Park at Riverside Drive and 144th St. Executive Chef Frank Maldonado served us delicious Puerto Rican specialties, like plantain with hummus, empanadas of chicken and pork, and paella with shrimp, with lovely cocktails. It was a delightful evening, in a gorgeous restaurant, with magnificent views of the Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge.
